Story of Married Life, Filmed on Lavish Scale. Cecil B. DeMille's latest Para? mount Artcrafl production, "Why Change Your Wife?" will come to the Ahilizi) The. utre Thursday, October 21. It is described as a striking drama of married lite lavishly presented. Gloria Swahson and Thomas Meighaii are the fea? tured players. The story is bv William DeMille. The plot centers around Rob? ert ami Beth Gordon, married for ten years, but now begin? ning to drift apart. Beth was a charming girl. She has become u too wifely wife and bores her husband with tier excessive so licitude for his comforts. He finds diversion in the company of vivacious, pleasure loving Sally Clark. Literal minded Beth imagines th?lll in love. A divorce follows, ami Robert marries Sally. Too late Beth discovers why she lost her hus? band and, blossoming like a rose, develops into society's gayest figure. Sally, on the other hand, is transformed by marriage into a worse house hold drudge than Beth ever was. Robert's eyes are opened when he again sees Belli, and through a dramatic series of events they uro brought happi? ly together. The picture has been produc? ed with ull the beauty of' set? ting, mastery of screen tech? nique, and admirable attention to detail that wus characterist? ic of Cecil B. DeMille in "Male und Female" und his other cin? ema classics. Sudu Uovvun and Olgu Brintzlau furnished the scenario.?adv. Henry Bullitt, who has just completed a business course ut Pokeepsiu, N.

"I like to hear that man preach, because he gives me Huinethitit; tu live by during the week." That is what n busy business man said about Iiis pastor. It was high praise. Why should people go to church, if it is not for some? thing like tilts? There is no particularmerh in being bored, even when the process is label? led "pins," and there is no re? sistless fascination in listening 10 a pulpiteer perform, even when be does it well. 'Chen what is the merit of church at tendance? If one goes back to his work Monday as lean and spent, as listless and inspirationless, as empty of courage and as * oid of hope as when he closed shop Saturday night, the church has ?uit met his need. There should be something in the hour in (rod's house to lift us out of the sordid and sel? fish, und set us anew on our ?ptest for the Holy Oruih There should he something in the minister's message that makes tired souls look up and take hold afresh, and wavering feet Straighten and steady A man should go out of that sanc? tuary with a shining vision, and a cleansed Conscience, and a singing heart, and a will that is charged tifresh with the pow? er that overcomes the world, Then the church must I o n power house, it is a mistake to try to make it a pluy-lidiise. People do not go to the church for what they gel, at the the? ater. The theater eati beat tin Church when It comes to ellter tailiment. The preacher who has dropped down into nothil g but an entertainer has forgot, teil his commission. It is not enough for the church to be a schoolhouso. Ii must instruct, but it must do more. .Men m-ed more than in formation; they need inspira tion. They need motive powei strong enough to drive life up lull. The cliurc.lt has missed its mission when the switch n thrown on Sunday morning, and no power leaps out from that central dynamo to recharge the spent wires of human lift that are there to be made alive again.
